Portrait of DIAS Fellow Kedar Nath Natarajan

From 13/12/2018

In DIAS we affiliate the best young researchers. Meet Kedar Natarajan, who is a DIAS Fellow at Functional Genomics and Metabolism Unit and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department at University of Southern Denmark.

Kedar’s research investigates the fundamental process of cell cycle during embryonic development at single-cell resolution using state-of-art imaging and next-generation sequencing technologies. Simply, how a single fertilized cell divides, scales and generates the incredible complexity of cell types, tissues and organs within human body.

Kedar has extensive experience with high–throughput single-cell genomics approaches, including important publications in the field.
